Craving a sweet treat? We’ve got you covered, sugar! Our little slice of paradise is bursting with everything from European-inspired bakeries to cutesy cupcake shops. Check out some of the best places to get a sweet treat in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches.
Step inside this bakery and you’ll be in Portuguese pastry paradise without even leaving Palm Coast. Its glass display case laden with authentic treats, Delicias of Portugal transports hungry patrons across the Atlantic with every delightful bite. From the custard-filled pastel de nata (egg tart) to the coconut-topped pao de deus (sweet bread), there are goodies galore. We recommend ordering a smorgasbord of lip-smacking yummies and a hot coffee, then, grab a seat to people watch and listen as the dulcet tones of Portuguese float past.
Becca has a sweet tooth, and we all benefit from it. Tucked away in Bunnell, this little bake shop beckons us with simple but sumptuous desserts. The menu is a drool-worthy hodge podge of our favorite treats: delicately iced cupcakes, chewy cookies, and silky pudding cups. The interior of the bakery itself is darling, donning a cheery pink and white color scheme. Get an ooey-gooey pecan roll to go or gather ‘round one of the cozy tabletops with a campfire cookie—a rich dark chocolate confection packed with semisweet chips, caramel, gooey marshmallows, and pretzels.
Scoring a sweet treat is a piece of (cup) cake at this spot in Palm Coast. The Cupcake Café bakes up between 700 and 1,000 of these baked delights each day. More than 40 scrumptious flavors line the display cases. Tickle your tastebuds with options like piña colada, oatmeal crème pie, and butter pecan. Each one is artfully topped with delicate frosting and, depending on the recipe, edible extras like sprinkles, chocolate chips, and cherries.
This Italian bakery boasts a menu crammed with everything from sfogliatelle (a shell-shaped Italian pastry with orange ricotta filling) to amaretti cookies. Best of all? Each one is made from scratch, like Nonna used to make. No cake mixes, artificial flavors or pre-made fillings, here. The bakery uses quality ingredients like unbleached flours, imported French butter, and house-made vanilla extract. These scratch-made confections garner glowing reviews. Fan favorites include the lobster tail, a lobster-shaped Italian pastry with hundreds of buttery layers and a vanilla cream filling and the crispy, cream-filled cannoli, which comes from a generations-old family recipe.
